SPECIAL EVENT: POINT A presents: SHARING AS A SOLUTION TO CLIMATE CHANGE

  "Everyone except oil company lobbyists, some crazed talk show radio hosts and much of the US Congress knows climate change is a problem.  The UN is saying that anything less than 80% reduction in carbon footprint by the major countries in the world will result in climate catastrophe.  But almost no one has a blue print for an 80% carbon reduction without unacceptably high disruption in peoples life styles.

    No one but us.  The income sharing intentional communities movement are technically living below the poverty line while actually having access to a middle class or some would argue upper middle class lifestyle.  This is done by a complex set of sharing agreements which makes the communities both economically and socially robust.  

   This workshop and presentation discusses how participants can bring more sharing into their lives and how rather than a dangerous economic free fall, depending on others is actually the safety net most of us are looking for."

MOVIE: ZEITGEIST NYC presents PARADISE OR OBLIVION by the VENUS PROJECT: 49 minutes long. Reminds me of the Buckminster Fuller proofs back in the 1970s that humankind has everything it needs to choose Utopia for all humanity. Unfortunately "Wall Street" needs war to continue its controls, so therein lies the problem. This movie by the geniuses at the Venus Project "proposes an alternative vision of what the future can be if we apply what we already know in order to achieve a sustainable new world civilization. It calls for a straightforward redesign of our culture in which the age-old inadequacies of war, poverty, hunger, debt and unnecessary human suffering are viewed not only as avoidable, but as totally unacceptable. Anything less will result in a continuation of the same catalogue of problems inherent in today's world. Today many people believe what is needed is a higher sense of ethical standards and the enactment of international laws to assure a sustainable global society."

Join us to watch the movie and then talk about the ideas it contains!

TALK-BOX!
   From Wednesday, July 15 , trhu Friday, July 17, members of the community where Eric Garner lived and the larger Staten Island public are invited to visit WNYC's "TalkBox" to share their thoughts on Eric Garner’s death and its impact. These testimonials will be shared via Twitter from @WNYCTalkBox, and will play a significant role in WNYC’s news programming during the days leading up to the anniversary.
   TalkBox is a former New York City payphone that WNYC has repurposed as a tool to hear directly from the communities the station serves about a variety of issues affecting their lives.

   Talk Box is at Staten Island Arts in the ferry terminal Wednesday and Thursday 11-7. On Friday July 17th, Talk Box will be at ETG Book Cafe from noon til 9pm.

   “The city and the nation have been engaged in a critical examination of race and policing as events in New York, Ferguson, Cleveland, Baltimore, Charleston and elsewhere have prompted reflection, activism and government action,” said Jim Schachter, Vice President, News at WNYC. “WNYC’s job is to take stock of where we are and invite people across this region into the conversation about where we’re going. TalkBox will help us do that more effectively than ever before.”

MUSIC: From Switzerland!   
REGULA KUFFER and NICK PERRIN

Had it not been for the Bernese musician Matthias Wenger these two virtuosos - Regula Küffer on flute and Nick Perrin on guitar - would probably not have met on musical terrain. Wenger, however, had anticipated the magic of such an unusual marriage and without hesitation organised their first joint concert in his studio space in late 2013, which was received with excitement by an enthralled crowd. The two subsequently teamed up for a recording and their debut album is about to be unleashed in germany by Mons Records in july 2015.In his playing style Perrin clearly displays an affinity for the Flamenco tradition, whereas Küffer hails from a classical background. It is the friction between these two worlds that produces all the ingredients necessary for an unpredictable and adventurous journey. In addition to each's mastery on their respective instrument, Küffer and Perrin aim to walk the tightrope between Flamenco, Chamber music and improvised music. Expect virtuosity, loads of drive and tremendous verve. A new dawn for Flamenco, Jazz and Classical Music lovers alike.

POETRY & MUSIC: POETRY CONCERT
   
CSI Professor TYHIMBA JESS brings us three poetic and musical voices: GARY COPELAND LILLEY, CORNELIUS EADY & BAND; VIVEE FRANCIS.
   Cornelius Eady
is an American writer focusing largely on matters of race and society, His poetry often centers on jazz and blues, family life, violence, and societal problems stemming from questions of race and class.
   Vievee Francis
is one of those poets who is often described as ‘visionary.’ Her poetry is deep and rich and so strong, her voice in conversation is as complex, thoughtful, and passionate as it is in her poetry.
   Gary Copeland Lilley is a terrific poet whose poems sound like part Stradivarius, part blues saxophone, and part southern gospel singer--successfully blending virtuosic craftmanship, blues soul, and moral import--something quite unique

MYSTICAL REVELRY: OPEN SHARING with Featured Performers.
Learning from Mystical Experiences    MC= MICHAEL O'CONNELL

How do we define mystical experiences?

  • Mystical Experience – Cosmic Consciousness  •  Enlightenment Experience  •  God-Realization  • Kensho  • NDE Like Experience  • Near Death Like Experience  •  Oneness Experience  •  Religious Experience  •  Samadhi • Self-Realization  •  Spiritual Awakening  •  Spiritual Experience   •  Transcendent Experience   •  Psychic Experience Unitive Experience

"For at least the last 3,000 years, people from every region of the world have experienced something extraordinary and transformational – the mystical experience.

During a mystical experience, there exists a simple unity, a pure consciousness, or non-duality of observer and observed. In addition to oneness, the defining features of mystical experience include feelings of sacredness, peace, and bliss; a sense of transcending time and space; and an intuitive conviction that the experience is a source of objective truth about reality.

The effects of mystical experiences are of enormous value to both experiencers and humanity. On a personal level, mystical experience leads to sudden and lasting positive changes in an experiencer's character and values.  And on a global scale, mystical experiences lie at or near the foundation of religions generally and thus even of civilization itself. Indeed, the mystical roots of conscious experience reveal a deep human identity, transcending all national, racial, personal, and theological differences.  It is therefore vital to further our understanding of these important, transformative experiences."
